About the property

Beautiful 3 plus bedroom cabin with large lakeside yard

This beautiful home offers a low bank, making it perfect for families with young children or retirees. Swim or fish off the dock, make s'mores by the campfire, nap in the hammock, or relax in the screen porch. The cabin is located in the opening of a little bay, which is great for kayaking (we provide 2), canoeing, (we provide 1) bird watching and pan fishing. There is room for the whole family, with a large loft bedroom upstairs, 2 bedrooms and 1 bath on the main floor, plus another bedroom, bathroom & rec room in the basement. Birch Lake is connected to Big Chetac, which combined offers over 2,000 acres of great fishing, boating, restaurants & bars. Only 5 miles from Tagalong Golf Course and restaurant, 2 miles to the town of Birchwood.

About Eric & Lori Borg

We (Eric & Lori) purchased Lakeside Paradise while pregnant with our daughter, Ella. Eric has been coming to Birch Lake with his family since 1976. Lori grew up on a lake in northwestern Minnesota. Now with two small children, one in college, and our many activities, we do not get to the cabin as much as we would like. When we are at the cabin, we do not want to go anywhere else! We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.

Eric & Lori Borg purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Eric & Lori Borg chose Birchwood

Location, location, location! The fact that ours is one of the few cabins on Birch Lake with a low bank to the water is really important to us. The cabin is at the end of a private road with very little traffic. We are in a bay which has little boat traffic as well. These factors make our cabin perfect for keeping children safe. Our cabin also is a wonderful blend of modern conveniences and up north privacy.

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the week here making meals together, playing games, and swimming in the lake! We ate almost every meal on the screened in porch and enjoyed the amazing views. The cottage was exactly like the pictures! So clean and neat and so much to do while you are here! We hope to return!

Lakeside Paradise is right!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this rental. Listing description and photo very accurate. Everything was very clean, the beds comfortable. Owners were pleasant to deal with and quick to respond to question. One of the items that drew me to this place was the screened in porch and it didn't disappoint. The porch even had ceiling fans which helped on the hot humid days. Great fishing off the pier. We enjoyed the Pizza Den restaurant in town and also took the opportunity to rent a pontoon for the day from a Bay Vue resort on Big Chatec Lake. Highly recommend!
